did you have a liver biopsy diagnosing NASH?  If not you might just have fat in the liver which will not cause long-term damage. Are you overweight?

No i did not had any biopsy, just based on elevated SGPT and SGOT levels and based on USG reports which shows diffuse fat infilatration in liver (grade-I). Besides, I had done all the hepatitis tests and blood sugar test also which  reads normal. For your information, I want to mention that i ,m not overweight also. My weight is just around 65kg with 5.7" height.
Kindly help me to overcome this pathetic situation.

if the liver tests remain elevated i believe that a liver biopsy is warranted as this will assess how much damage the liver has incurred.Start taking vitamin E 400 IU twice daily.  Even if you are not overweight if the quality of your diet is not good, it can cause fatty liver. Try to exercise also.
